About

The cycle paths at Skien fritidspark are easily accessible and varied, from the very easy to the technically demanding. You will find circular trails for mountain bikes, Enduro trails and pump tracks, so everyone should find something for their level.

Well-marked circular trails at different levels
Solum Mountain Bike Club has done a fantastic job with its three circular tracks. As the colors indicate, the Green trail (approx. 600 m) is quite easy and can be recommended for children and beginners, the Blue trail (approx. 2.3 km) is recommended for teenager/adults and the Red trail (approx. 3 km) is recommended for teenager/adults with some experience. It is clearly easiest to overcome the various elements with a fully damped bicycle, but in all places where there are demanding elements, there is also an easier option. The tracks are well marked.

Våyrløypa, a trail with varied terrain
Våyrløypa is a circular trail of approx. 5 km, which has been assigned a level of difficulty of Blue. There are some ups and downs in the terrain with long flow zones in between. There is a varied substrate with elements of gravel, grass, roots and some clods, but most of all it is natural forest floor. The trail designers in Eidanger IL Sykkel have naturalness as their philosophy and the trail plays with both creative and technical quirks without the catastrophic consequences. Where there are elements of a technical nature, there are also simpler alternatives that can be cycled.

Enduro trails
There are 14 Enduro trails near Skien fritidspark and the trail network is constantly developing. The trails are organized in "Stretch", which is essentially cycling uphill and downhill. Many of the sections have a common access road (which is then mostly uphill). For maximum enjoyment, we recommend a bicycle and equipment suitable for downhill cycling. It is the zealots in Herkules Heildemparlaug who have prepared the trails and this group organizes "community cycling" at regular intervals. Information about this can be obtained from Hotell fritidsparken. HHL can also help with equipment, skills training and guiding in our terrain, should it be of interest.

Skien fritidsparken and Hotell fritidsparken welcome all cyclists
